I vaguely remember buying an album by the Night Trains on Acid Jazz in the ’90s. I can recall the sleeve, but very little about the actual album if truth be told. Anyway, the band is back on the same label with something that’s likely to divide opinion.
It’s a 7-inch only release of No More Heroes. Yes, that’s right, the Stranglers’ tune. Except this sounds nothing like the original 1970s tune. This time it has been reinvented as a northern soul-style stomper.
I was going to review it, but as the video has just gone ‘live’, I’ll let you be the judge. Feel free to offer up an opinion. If you like, it is released on 3rd September via Acid Jazz as that vinyl single, with an instrumental version of the track on the flipside.
